A shooting is under investigation following the death of a man whose body was found in an alley near Normal Heights, according to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD).
Authorities received multiple calls around 4:15 a.m. Monday of gunshots on the 4200 block of 35th Street, according to SDPD Homicide Lt. Jud Campbell.
“Officers responded and when they arrived, they located a male down in the alley of this location with apparent gunshot wounds," Campbell said. "They began lifesaving measures, medics responded, but unfortunately, he was pronounced deceased here in the alley.”
SDPD added the victim had at least one gunshot wound to the chest in an alleyway.
Campbell said authorities have identified the man, but are not releasing his name at this time pending notification to his family. He did, however, say the victim was 52.
At this time, no arrests have been made in connection with the shooting and a description of the gunman has not been made available.
Details on what led up to the shooting were not immediately clear. The investigation is ongoing.
